Field of Light @ The Eden Project


We imagine this installation would be fairly trippy to see in the right situation! A really beautiful and organic use of light by Bruno Munro, it has been previously shown at the V&A and is now going to be exhibited on the roof of The Eden Project from this November through to spring 2009. As it’s best viewed in hours of darkness, Field of Light will be in place through the Winter Season when Eden transforms into a winter wonderland- with a Christmas market and ice-skating, curling, roasted chestnuts, mulled wine, hot chocolate and choirs. The Eden Project itself really is such an exiting venture, which really hope to visit in the future. A project which concentrates on educating people about the benefits of sustainability and nature on a whole should be given its due as it has been around long before the rest of the world woke up to the impending climate crisis. The use of a more sustainable light within Munro’s installation, allows it not only to have an organic, naturalistic aesthetic, but to emphasize that its use of energy is minimised also. It is made of acrylic tubes, through which fibre optic cables run, each topped by an acrylic ball. There is an external projector, and so the stems themselves hold no electric power at all.
